Tonawanda Depression due to Back Pain Helped with Cox® Technic

The mind-body connection. It’s real. And in no other condition than one related to the spine is this more real. The spine is the support for the body. When it hurts, the body knows it. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation knows it, too. Tonawanda back pain and neck pain and spine-related pain patients know it, too. The chiropractic treatment plan at our office for spine-related pain effectively relieves both body and mind pain to let our patients discover a satisfying quality of life. Back pain’s depression often is relieved with our Cox® Technic System of decompression.

MIND AND BODY: DEPRESSION IN BACK PAIN PATIENTS

Leading causes of disability globally incorporate musculoskeletal diseases and mental disorders like anxiety and depression. A report of patients with lumbar spondylolisthesis showed how anxiety and depression have an effect on a person’s well-being. Emotional distress and disability that patients feel negatively affects their overall well-being. (1) A new review of medical studies connects these two concerns, too. Anxiety and cervical/lumbar disc herniation, mood/anxiety and lower bone mineral density in men, chronic low back pain and depression, life satisfaction improvement and bone loss prevention in postmenopausal women, quality of life deterioration and multiple osteoporotic fractures. Adults over 45 old with musculoskeletal diseases mentally struggle with the impact these issues have on their lifestyle. (2) That is where chiropractic care helps. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation offers evidence-based chiropractic care in the form of the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to ease pain and give control of it in the hands of our Tonawanda patients. There is hope. There is life during and after treatment. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation is ready for our Tonawanda back pain patients every step of the way. Using anti-depressants – anti-cholinergic drugs - may not be the answer for depressed patients. They are shown to raise the risk of dementia with long-term use. These drugs stop the neurotransmitter acetylcholine in the central and peripheral nervous system. (3) We all need clear minds to deal with life with and without back pain.

THE DEPRESSION AND ANXIETY OF BACK PAIN

Depression and anxiety are states of mind most of us contend with at some point in life. For chronic low back pain patients, depression and anxiety frequently go hand-in-hand with their pain experience. Logically, higher levels of depression often come from more pain and a lower sense of personal control of pain and overall health. More anxiety often extends from deeper beliefs about negative effects of illness, negative emotional thoughts of the illness, and depression. These conclusions support the need for more honest advising of chronic back pain patients. (4) You can trust Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation to be honest!

HELP FOR DEPRESSION: Tonawanda CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Help for back pain depression is built into the chiropractic treatment plan, especially exercise. Exercise is valuable for the body. That is a known fact. Is exercise good for the mind? For those of us dealing with chronic low back pain – Tonawanda chiropractic patients and your Tonawanda chiropractor – the more specific curiosity is whether exercise is beneficial for chronic low back pain patients’ minds. A recent study states that symptoms of depression were decreased in such adults who used exercise (low dose) and manual therapy and/or general strengthening and moderate exercise. (5) Neither came out ahead of the other. Both showed promise in lessening depression. That’s good news. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation ensures that Tonawanda chiropractic patients know this and delivers safe, gentle, effective, pain-relieving treatment.
